If I exhibit that kind of behavior, their gaze won't last. But you have a point about avoiding their gaze to begin with if you're viewed as just talking/singing with a headset on. The problem is the headset then becoming a necessary appendage.
If I were to see someone talking to himself within an earshot, then depending on whether or not it seems interesting I might even curiously listen for a while. Or I would tell him to shut up, due to his babbling interrupting my daydreaming, which is more likely I suppose.
